In this module we focus on a strategic Asset Management Plan; how can such a plan help to take Real Estate decisions that will lead to a contributing portfolio? Next to this, we zoom in on  a specific building of which we explore the demand side (what do occupiers need to be able to flourish?) and the supply side (what’s the current performance of the building). Comparization of these two sides shows a match or a mismatch. We develop a strategy to improve the match. Finally this strategy is being translated into a tactical plan in which a rough cost estimate of the suggested interventions is included.


Professionals who want to develop themselves in this field. Particularly when delivering a appreciated fit for use environment is part of your challenge.

The first coursework assignment (3.000 words, 30%) requires students to evaluate the strategic property plan of an organization. The second coursework assignment (7.000 words, 70%) concerns the development of a strategic and project plan for a specific building, based on an analysis of trends and developments, stakeholders, building performance, bottlenecks and improvement targets. The building performance analysis has to be based upon the added value dimensions from van der Voort/TUDelft.



Students prepare the sessions and they pitch their preparations right at the start of the day. Then group discussions take place, interactive workshops, exercises (group wise and individually). Specialists give guest lectures about e.g. Strategic Asset Management, Tactical plans, Stakeholders Management, Value Dimensions. The atmosphere in class is quite loose; different thoughts are being encouraged. Active participation of all attendees is the recipe to create an effective learning environment.

Preparation of the sessions, attending the sessions, processing the discussed information and the assignments (two papers to write) will take between150 -200 hours.
